Best Pictures Of 2017

I just checked out what I wrote in 2015 and it turns out nothing has changed. Absolutely nothing. Syria is still one big mess. Innocent refugees still want to flee countless frightening war zones. The Brexit has isolated and divided Britain a little more. Trump has done the same in the US. France was once again hit with terrorist attacks. And falling oil prices have given companies and consumers the excuse not to care about the environment as much.
I would be really good if we could let 2016 be and concentrate on making 2017 a year to never forget for the right reasons.


Yeah, that didn't happen, did it? If anything, things got worse, we just decided to turn a blind eye to some things that might offend or disturb us. Let's stop that in 2018 and make a difference to the present and the future.
